immigration policy and how we need to change education policy alice well. immigration policy is based on family relationships. it is not based on economic considerations, skills and knowledge. while we need to revitalize education for americans, we need to recognize the extent to which people are coming to america to learn we need to do what we need to do to keep them in america. >> this is our core problem. there trillions of connections in the brain called neurons. they start down at age 6 when they start public school. kids at a school soared like eagles, got college scholarships, they got wired. when you know this and you do not talk about it and do not do anything about it, this is another recipe for disaster. our public education system is just really got to be strained out. the teachers' unions are primarily concerned about how much they make a year, and that is not where the concern has to be. it is making sure that children have the funds in education that are needed for education. >> we spend double per person to educate k through 12, double other nations. we do the same thi
broadcasting funds support shows including sesame street that provide educational programming for children especially those that cannot afford to go to preschool. the total money going to pbs accounts for roughly .00013% of the federal budget. that's a very small amount. despite utterly nominal amount of money on the table the president has been trumpeting the big bird message since the debate. >> thank goodness somebody is finally getting tough on big bird. >> governor romney plans to let wall street run wild again but he's going to bring down the hammer on sesame street. >> elmo has been seen in a white -- in a white suburban. he's driving for the boarder. >> here on the panel after a hellish commute mother jones washington bureau chief david corn author of the book "47%" uncovering the romney video that rocked the 2012 election. it ain't a over but that video did its share of rocking. >> before big bird hit the scene. >> exactly. david, let's talk about the big bird ad. a good thing for team obama to be using or a bad thing? >> you know, i've always been a fan in politics of what i call
the educational experience of all pupils. >> caller: that's good. i guess it goes back to the case the was deemed moot anyway, but the fact of the matter is when you are laying on that table and you are about to have brain surgery, it doesn't matter what color the surgeon is. i don't care if he is black, white, it doesn't make any difference. the fact of the matter is if they were granted admission to school simply based on the fact of their skin color, that in itself is discriminatory. >> host: okay. carroll. oklahoma city. independent. good morning. >> caller: good morning. i would say that i hope [inaudible] they don't intervene because that affirmative action of white women versus african-american women for jobs and positions and i think it is being used in that respect. hopefully the supreme court will step down and allow it to continue as it is. >> host: okay. new hampshire. the democratic call. good morning, now three. what are your thoughts? >> caller: i just think it's unfortunate that today we need this kind of law we. look at the ayaan to leave the unemployment rate on its higher among
new jobs. we cannot slow up on education, because that's the engine that is going to give us the economic growth and competitiveness that we need. and we are not going to slow up on the whole idea of providing for affordable health care for americans, none of which, when we get to talk about health care, is as my -- as the governor characterized -- characterized. the bottom line here is that we are going to, in fact, eliminate those wasteful spending that exist in the budget right now, a number of things i don't have time, because the light is blinking, that i won't be able to mention, but one of which is the $100 billion tax dodge that, in fact, allows people to take their post office box off- shore, avoid taxes. i call that unpatriotic. i call that unpatriotic. >> governor? >> that's what i'm talking about. >> governor? >> well, the nice thing about running with john mccain is i can assure you he doesn't tell one thing to one group and then turns around and tells something else to another group, including his plans that will make this bailout plan, this rescue plan, even be

people in the audience. they like it. we viewed it as part of the educational function of the commission of presidential debates. that is what we do it on college campuses. it is amazing, there are thousands of students out there on one side or the other. they are energized. the people in this community are energized. we think is very important to have this sort of setting and we will continue this. there is much jargon about whether or not it ought to be in a studio. -- much argument about whether it ought to be in a studio. i think that is a sterile environment. the university campuses the center of learning in our country. >> we are about to begin engaging our audience on the importance of the vice- presidential debate. our question to them is, does it affect your vote? >> it is a trite expression, but it is true, that the vice president is one heartbeat from the presidency. over the last 50 years, we have had places where the vice president has had to become the president. sometimes temporarily, when we have had operations on some of the existing precedents. other times there are ass
to report that she got federal aid and is now going to college making her dream as an education come true because she is going to be a social worker. she wanted to tell us her family is better off. she's doing everything right planning by the rules, and i think that there's someone on her side and middle class family in the 16th district deserve someone who is going to be there in washington looking out for them because the special-interest and self-serving politicians have left people. thank you. [applause] >> moderator: thank you very much, congresswoman sutton. congressman renacci no single party can have all the good ideas. what have you heard from your colleagues on the other side of the aisle that makes sense to you and what are you doing specifically to bring the government since the of gridlock to the nation's capital? renacci: you talked about my bipartisan group and i appreciate that. we got about dodd-frank and the runaway train. i wasn't even in congress at that time so it's interesting. the truth about the bipartisanship is we have to work on that partisanship. i am so proud
either because they are frustrated or because they want to get more training or education. some people are finding jobs. economists have looked at different calculations of which is the better factor -- the bigger factor, or people dropping out or getting more education and training and my understanding is that there are equal roles being played by each for spirit -- each force. but there are definitely some dropping out. some of that is the baby boom generation starting to retire. it may not be a "dropping out," but people choosing to retire and leave their jobs. some older people may have lost their jobs and cannot find new ones and are taking early social security benefits. there is some of that. host: mr. r doane, the labor force participation -- mr. nardone, a labor force position rick, please explain this. guest: the take the people who are employed in those who are unemployed and combine them and you get what is called the labour force. divide that by the population in at 16 and over and you're of the force participation rate. is the proportion of the population that is either e
with him. >> i do not know of any government program that john is supporting. not early education. the reason no child was left behind is the money is left behind. with regard to the role of vice president, i had a long talk, as a sure the governor did, with her principal, with a rock. i have a history of getting things done in the united states senate. -- with barack. i have a history of getting things done in united states senate, as john mccain nos. i would be the point person on getting things done. when asked if i wanted a portfolio, my response was no, but for rock obama indicated he wanted me with him to help him govern, so every decision he makes, i will be sitting with him in the room to give him advice -- but for rock -- but barack obama indicated he wanted me in the room to help him govern. i look forward to working with barack and playing a very constructive role in his presidency, bringing about the kind of change this country needs. >> from 2008, in st. louis, the vice presidential debate, robert watson, let me pick up on something we discussed earlier, which is how
it says is it's a matter of priorities. who stands with the priorities that education, young people, all that. so that's why they're using it in that way. and i think that will play into the debate tonight just the way andrea was talking about because when you get to medicare, i think that biden has a clearly different point of view. when you get to spending, when you get to taxes. i think that's what big bird was about in terms of that ad saying to especially women, look at the priorities of the republicans -- >> women don't sit at home at night worrying about big bird. i'm telling you right now. i was not up thinking about big bird. i can assure you of that. the fact they're talking about big bird makes them look very, very unserious. and no offense to my five-year-old nephew, but he is talk being big bird. mitt romney is a bully, it's just so fifth grade. we knew that obama lacked maturity before. now we know for sure that his campaign does. >> steve: all right. >> i'm glad you're not worried about that. >> steve: "the five" is stuff a popular show. thank you for joining us live. >> h
million people off medicare and kick 200,000 children off of early education, it will eliminate the tax credit people have to send their children to college. it cuts education by $450 billion. it does -- it does virtually nothing except continue to increase the tax cuts for the very wealthy. and you know, we have had enough of this. the idea that he's so concerned about the deficits, i pointed out, he voted to put two wars on a credit card-- >>> we are going to the closing statements in just a minute. youville -- >> not raising taxes is not cutting taxes. by the way, our budget -- >> we have not raised taxes. >> martha: let me calm things down here just for a minute. i want to talk to you very briefly before the closing statements about your personal character. if you were elected, what could you both give to this country, as a man, as a human being, that no one else could? >> honesty. no one else could? there are plenty of fine people who could lead this country. but what you need are people who when they say they are going to do manage, they do t. what you need, when people see proble

under control or increase our revenue, we won't have enough resources to invest in education, especially vest in high value added research, to invest in energy or infrastructure. these are the problem areas that we have to face up to. >> when you think about the broader economy, how much do the macro issues play into how you grow your business? >> as a public company, you get measured in four categories, top line, bottom line, margin and inventory. if you write the press lease, how do those father characteristics look. at the end of the day, you can't spend more than you're bringing in. so pretty basic fundamentals that we get measured on on a quarterly basis that i think our public officials should be measured on at the same time. and so i don't think the right place for me today in sports is buying in on the political climate as much as we have issues that what we're doing is just generating jobs and building a better company for people and hopefully -- under armour serves a role. what i want people to do is looking at our company and saying this is a company that over the course of 15
